The Pressure’s On Harper to End Online Spying — Let’s Keep it Up

n-ONLINE-SPYING-CANADA-large570It looks like the rumble against the government’s Online Spying Bill C-13 is turning into a roar.

Leading Conservative elder statesman Stockwell Day has joined the growing chorus of Canadians speaking out about how Bill C-13 would expose law-abiding Canadians to warrantless government spying. If passed, the controversial bill would grant immunity to telecom companies who hand our private information to the government without a warrant.

In hard-hitting remarks on CBC’s Power and Politics, Stockwell Day expressed sympathy with the views of Ontario Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian, who recently called for Bill C-13 to be split to remove its online spying proposals:

“There can be an overreaction in terms of how you correct it. So [Cavoukian is] raising a bit of an alarm here. Let’s be very careful in how we could protect someone in a situation like this, but let’s also be careful in going too far and limiting even things like free speech, [or using] invasive techniques that could be employed by policing.”

“I’m hoping they take another look at this and kind of curtail some of those powers,” Day added.

These remarks by such a prominent senior Conservative (Day is the former leader of the Canadian Alliance, the forerunner to today’s Conservative party) are sure to add to the growing pressure on Defence Minister Peter MacKay to split C-13.

Day’s comments come hot on the heels of passionate Parliamentary testimony by Carol Todd, the mother of cyberbullying victim Amanda Todd. Carol bravely told key MPs to stop using bullied children as an excuse to drive forward measures that undermine everybody’s privacy:

The message from all this is clear — the long-simmering rumble of discontent about reckless and out-of-control government spying is turning into an upsurge, as more and more Canadians speak out. Stockwell Day’s intervention yesterday is particularly significant. A key turning point in the successful battle against the government’s previous spying bill (C-30) was when conservatives started to speak out.

After all, there’s no doubt that Stockwell Day is speaking on behalf of countless grassroots conservative supporters across the country. A recent poll revealed that millions of Conservative voters are opposed to mass surveillance. We hope that pressure from Canadians will encourage Conservative MPs to start speaking out about the hugely unpopular blanket spying measures in Bill C-13. They should put both public and private pressure on Defence Minister MacKay to split the bill and remove the online spying provisions. continue reading »» Posted: 05/24/2014 11:37 pm by David Christopher Communications Manager for OpenMedia.ca

The Doctor’s Office

6435-ErinMillspkwyNow lets explore the medical profession and their criminal interference, or were they directed by an much larger entity to commit these violations! For those of you who have been following my story are aware of my issue of teeth grinding while sleeping which without a doubt has been a long time standing medical issue for me with numerous trips per month for medical treatment due to headaches, toothaches and earaches, not to mention prostate issues.
While employed at SunGard I did have a family physician Dr. So located five minutes from work at THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE Medical Clinic, 6435 Erin Mills Parkway, Mississauga, Ontario.
On May 29, 2008 I had to pay an emergency visit to the Doctor’s Office Medical Clinic due to extreme pain of another tooth infection. At the time my Family Doctor, Dr. So was not available or in the office so I seen the Doctor currently on call, Dr. Saleem Hala. Due to the fact I was in extreme pain, I saw the Doctor without waiting. During the examination the doctor had me open my mouth as wide as possible as she used a tongue depressor to locate the tooth in question, once she located the tooth and I confirmed, with a sudden jab at the tooth caused me to spring from the table I was sitting on, now in even worst pain, while still holding the left side of my face yelling at her and immediately exiting the room and left the office as fast as possible.
On June 2, 2008 I sent a letter stating my disgrace with what I experienced on my last and final visit I would ever make to the Doctor’s Office, requesting all personal information with in my file returned to me immediately. I also filed a complaint with the Ontario Medical Association.
Now not having a family Doctor and not long after the incident at The Doctor’s Office I received a flyer in the mail for a new Walk-in Medical Clinic located not far from home on Lakeshore Blvd and Hurontario Street area. This clinic had weekend hours so as not to miss any more time from work the following Saturday I proceeded to check it out. Upon arriving and entering the front door I was greeted by an empty waiting room, an Asian individual in a white long coat whom appeared to be a Doctor and a white Caucasian lady sitting behind the counter, I was taken in immediately for an examination.
As I was there to inquire about the issue of teeth grinding and a remedy to help stop or decrease the frequency of the grinding. The doctor insisted on learning a little more about my medical history before beginning any treatment. After I briefly explained my current medical history which included the issues I was having regarding prostate infections. Knowing this he suggested he start with a prostate exam. I am sure as men we are aware of how a prostate exam is preformed, and many of us refuse this examination due to shame and the process which it is preformed, entry through the anus, which to start with is very personal and uncomfortable, but I agreed and followed his instructing, which I will omit for now. The process involves inserting a finger in the anus to check for swelling of the prostate gland. Once I was laid on my left side with my knees to my chest and my back turned to him he inserted a blunt object into the anus which caused extreme pain causing me to fall from the other side of the table to the floor. At this point as I pick myself off the floor now in servere pain, barely able to stand. Once I was on my feet, now getting back in my clothing as fast as possible, he says while sitting on a step stool, suggesting I stand in front of him. I said nothing and made my way out of the office to the front exit, the lobby now empty, I hear him saying and I quote “You have been just fucked up the ass by the Canadian Government”
I experienced bleeding for a few days and feared going to the washroom but the pain did not subside until a few weeks had passed.
The next day on Sunday, now full of anger and upset I contacted friends and told them about what happened, they we’re in disbelief and offered to pay the office a visit with me. I agreed so two days later on Monday we drove to the Walk-in clinic and I was shocked to find the unit had paper covering the inside of the windows and a for rent sign in the door, the appearance of a long time vacant unit.

This is also why I was assaulted by employees of Richcraft whom I believe was under orders to commit the assault.
